The 35th Annual Research and Treatment Conference, sponsored by the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers, will be at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida, November 2 - 5, 2016.

This conference will offer symposia, workshop presentations, poster sessions, discussion groups, and advanced clinics relating to issues in both victim and perpetrator research and treatment. All sessions, with the exception of posters, have been approved for Continuing Education credits. Each presentation will provide information and training based on cutting edge research development and clinical application. The format is designed to best facilitate interaction with and learning from some of the most advanced practitioners in the field of sexual abuse.
